Diving into the expansion of this dental office in Atlanta, Georgia, our team, together with the client, embarked on an exciting brainstorming session. The dentist expressed a desire for a space that radiated lightness through its use of color and form, all while embodying a chic aesthetic. This vision is vividly brought to life in our initial design renderings.
The reception greets visitors with its airy tiles and luminous paintwork, anchored by a modern, light reception desk. To introduce depth and character, we've juxtaposed these elements with rich, dark woods, accentuating the space's dynamic shapes. Behind the desk, a living green moss wall proudly bears the name of the practice, infusing a sense of vitality. Copper details sprinkle in a layer of sophistication, perfectly harmonizing with the cooler finish tones.
As our design concept evolved, the dentist suggested weaving in an industrial design theme, inspired by the raw, exposed aesthetics reminiscent of the show "Friends." This propelled us into creatively reimagining the iconic Central Perk's industrial charm within the dental office. Envision the reception and treatment corridors as spaces that capture the spirit of a vibrant, industrially themed coffee lounge, where the air buzzes with lively chatter and the aroma of espresso.
This exploration into integrating industrial design elements, with nods to the memorable settings of "Friends," was a captivating process. We aimed to craft an environment that echoes the show's iconic coffeehouse vibe, blending it seamlessly with the sleek, modern functionality of a dental practice. This approach has allowed us to create a space that not only pays homage to a piece of popular culture but also elevates the dental visit experience with its unique, industrially inspired ambiance.
